find Ishtar on DVD? I bet my cheap DVD player doesn't play European DVDs (the only place they released it on DVD). The year Ishtar came out, they called it the biggest flop of all time. What dumbasses. That is a really funny movie. If you haven't seen it, then you are probably thinking that it is one of the worst movies of all time. Don't believe the hype. It is a fantastically hilarious story about the dumbest and worst lounge singers ever that get sent to Ishtar because that is the only job they can find. The songs they sing are wonderfully awful.
What brought this whole thing up was that last night on the Golden Globes they honored Warren Beatty and actually showed a very, very short clip of Ishtar. Actually, I'm not even sure it was long enough to qualify as a clip (it was more of a hint or a blurb than a clip). Usually they ignore your bombs altogether when they tell you how great you are. I recall seeing some tribute for Tom Hanks and they just flat out ignored Joe Versus the Volcano. That was a funny movie, but I guess it was just too weird for the mainstream movie audience. So what I'm really getting to is that you should check out Ishtar and the movie people need to embrace its cult status and release on DVD in the U.S. How else am I going to get my blind camel fix?
